When I asked where, I assumed he was a UC or Xavier alum or something... but then he said "I played for the Bengals." I suddenly was able to put two and two together and realized he was the same guy I watched catch so many passes from Boomer Esiason in my youth!

    Had he not said anything, I would not have been able to tell who he was other than the guy in front of me ordering a pot pie. Incidentally, Eddie now works for a law firm in Miami and is still trying to get his injury settlement worked out with the Bengals (that's the downer part about the story I'm afraid).

    Anyway, I know this is a bit off topic, but I just wanted to share the story.
    First game at GABP, I was there. I was hanging out in the hotel lobby (I was probably like 13-14 at the time) when I spot Kenny Lofton walk in. Kenny Lofton was probably one of my Top 5 favorite players growing up.

    I walk up to him and I'm like oh my god Kenny Lofton! Can I have autograph?

    He goes, and I quote, "No, go to bed kid."

    Will never forget it lol.
